Roller Coaster Madness

One of the things we like to do when we hit Florida is go to Busch Gardens in Tampa. The kids (and my wife) LOVE roller coasters and they have some real doozies there. Being hurtled unnaturally through space is not my idea of a good time. We got to the park at 9:30 when they open and the kids rode the above coaster, "Mombu," twice.

We then ran to the next coaster, pictured below, and they were the first riders of the day. The attendant let them stay in their seats for the second ride. I was waiting when the two younger girls ran out screaming "Andrew's PUKING!" My fifteen year old, ambling further behind, said it was a classic projectile, streaming puke.

To his credit, he got right back on the next coaster, "Sheikra" (which features a hundred foot straight drop and moments of weightlessness). He said it was "AWESOME!"

I sometimes just don't "get" kids. Or roller coasters.
